It’s your decision, isn’t it?

“I’ve changed my mind.” is a full sentence. Just like “No.” we need not say more. Do we “need” an explanation from others when they say this to us? Why? Does a decision really need to be explained or defended? Is it really our business? Could it be about respecting others and the decisions they make for themselves? Is it just a bad habit that can be amended by no longer asking for an explanation? Just wondering what you think… Read more

Who could you become?

Lao Tzu said, “When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.” So when you take a good long look in the mirror and connect with your truest self, who are you right now? This can depend on how open you are to outside information what that “who” description will look like. It could be a physical description with all the added stuff that you have done so far in life. It could be who you believe ... Read more

What movie describes your life?

Happily Ever After- life is just good! The Perfect Storm- just one huge disaster! Groundhog Day- the same old, same old… The Trouble with Harry… you feel dragged along with no choice or control! Please comment on what movie/series describes your life. Whatever it is – if you are not thrilled with its content you have a choice to change it. No I did not say it would be easy, just that it is possible. If you don’t know where to start, get support to figure that ... Read more

Give peace a chance

I didn’t know what peace really meant. When I was young it meant a very small portion of something as there were eight of us to share and as kids our piece was always small. I figured out the difference as I grew up. As a teen it came in the saying “Peace, man”. There was “give peace a chance” that John Lennon said in the 60’s, from a bed holed up in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel with Yoko Ono in ... Read more

What’s in a name and how did you get yours?

I was second born to my 11 month older brother in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 28, 1958. I have 4 younger siblings of which 2 were girls and 2 were boys. I was given my father’s name Rowland, even though my parents were not married until five of the six of us were born- I was told this nugget as a teen. I was named after the perky character from the song in the movie “Tammy and the Batchelor” which came ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 “Eve has been shoulding all over herself!”

You met Eve last week in “Eve” a REAL client! Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom, not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have been there, ... Read more

What are you postponing right now?

What are you postponing right now? Worrying about “it” is not an effective way of dealing with “it”. All you have done is keep the negative energy around it alive. Facing it and clearing it from your life instantly adds energy to you. Makes you lighter somehow. Even if the “it” was painful or difficult, you are now able to let it go and move on to something else. Life was meant to live, not to be postponed to a later date. ... Read more

10 “Energizing” Habits #2…What feeds your soul?

What feeds your soul? Yeah, for me! Last week I kicked off “10 daily “energizing” habits and I for one did it! Well I did the first one, which was the plan, after all. I was a bit lazy on the weekend as I did some writing in advance, sort of. In reality I wrote every day as I was working on a new piece or editing one for the next day so it seems that is the nature of this beast. ... Read more

Are you having a “trying” day?

Last week I wrote from a thought after reading …to always try just “one more time” and immediately- it was all wrong for me. I missed out on the most important points so I will do this “one more time” for me- and for you. I really have ditched the word “try” from my vocabulary. My antenna goes up when I hear someone say “I will try to be there…” Or “I will try not to do that again.” It is a ... Read more

Is your child your “Mini-Me?”

“A low self-love in the parent desires that his child should repeat his character and fortune; an expectation which the child, if justice is done him, will nobly disappoint. By working on the theory that this resemblance exists, we shall do what in us lies to defeat his proper promise and produce the ordinary and mediocre. I suffer whenever I see that common sight of a parent or senior imposing his opinion and way of thinking and being on a young ... Read more
